    Need help on how to network
    I need help with how to make a folder that when windows xp logs over it can only see one folder on my computer and not all that is in the user machine. With windows you can assign so that you only have access to the folder and only that one. I know it can be done with a Mac but, how do I go about assigning a folder for the people on the other computer can see only?

    Thanks in advance,
    Dooglla...a mac newbie

    Couplla ways to go:

    (1) use the sharing tab from system prefs
    (2) use the info tab from finder (you can set permissions from there)

    The sharing area of system prefs lets you set more "global" access to the computer. Go to the blue apple in the upper left, click on system prefs, and then click on the sharing folder.

    The info tab (highlight a file or folder and hit "command-i") will let you set access permissions for a specific folder. The last option in the column is usually "ownership & permissions". You can set access by owner, group, or others.
